Book Review – The Failing Hours (How to Date a Douchebag #2) by Sara Ney

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: January 31, 2017 Pages: 322 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow.. I unarguably love this book. If you are the fans of New Adult romance, this book (the series) should be your next read. I highly recommend this book and the series for those who love bad, broken boys, yet incredibly handsome and popular. If you love this kind of story, you can skip my review and go purchase the book instead (the series even better). This book is book 2 in How to Date a Douchebag Series where each book features a different couple in the interconnected stories. I suggest you read book 1 first before jumping on this one, but you can definitely skip it and start with this one since each book can be read standalone. How is it about? The story is about Zeke Daniels, one of the most popular and handsome boys in the campus. He is a wrestling athlete along with her best friends and a very good and popular at it, […]

Book Review – The Studying Hours (How To Date A Douchebag #1) by Sara Ney

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: September 13, 2016 Pages: 307 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon I enjoyed this book so much. It is a new adult, college romance that reminds me of my first book-love, Beautiful Disaster (still loving it now), and my current favorite, the Off-Campus series. The hero reminds me a little bit of Travis. If you haven’t known yet, Travis is one of my favorite heroes. I love bad boys, players, popular boys that fall in love with the girls that are not their types, especially when the girls do not want to do anything with them. Yep, my favorite kind of stories. Still until now. I don’t know when I will be bored with these kinds of stories. Definitely not in the near future. 😉 What is the story about? It starts with a bet that Oz (Sebastian Osborn)–an extremely good looking, super smart, popular in sport, and campus popular player–accidently makes with his friends. When he and his friends are in the library to find his friend’s tutor, […]

Book Review – Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) by L.J. Shen

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: December 27, 2016 Pages: 328 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Honestly, I hesitated a little bit when I decided to read this book in the beginning because of two facts. First, this is a new author to me; I was not familiar with her writing yet. Second, I kind of had already predicted where the story would go; I was afraid of being bored or even worse deciding to not finishing it. But since I was in the mood for this kind of theme, I gave it a try, and I’m glad I did. I enjoyed this story a lot. What is it about? It follows the journey of a teenager named Emilia when her parents got a job (as housekeepers) in a mansion of a really wealthy family. Because of her sister’s poor health, she was forced by her parents to ask the son of her parents’ employers for a help. After their first meeting, she found out that he was a jerk, but never had crossed her […]

Book Review – Mists of the Serengeti by Leylah Attar

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 29, 2017 Pages: 309 POV: Dual First person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS Buy on Amazon OMG.. I’m dying here. I’m falling head over heels in love with this story. What a powerful, amazing story teller Leylah Attar is. I cannot describe enough how I feel about this book, but I’ll try my best. This story is the kind of story that you would not just enjoy and love but would stay with you long, or maybe as long as your novel reading experience after you finish reading it. I’m seriously feeling it now. It has the power like the other special books that have been with me for years. I was moved from the very first page till the very last one. The moment I read the first page, I knew, wow, “this is it.” This was I’d been looking for. The very rarely story that reminded me why I loved reading romance novels in the first place. It had hit the core where I could not realize I was reading a book, […]

I devoured and finished it less than a day, which I rarely do it. I loved it. Very few books manage to make me addicted, so I was ecstatic to find the book that made me that way.

She then ended up losing everything she and her husband had earned during their marriage. She was finally forced to live with her parents with no jobs.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: January 24, 2017 Pages: 259 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon I have read this author’s other book, Rock Me, and I loved it.

Book Review – Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 14, 2017 Pages: 289 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon This book is exactly what I was in the mood for. It is hilarious and refreshing at the same time, with a great combination of comedy, a little angst and plenty of emotional touches toward the end. It made me smile, laugh and in an emotional state that I always wanted to experience in reading a love story. What is the story about? It is about a single, workaholic man and woman that seem to not have a thing in common. He is a successfully divorced attorney, she is a marriage counselor. He is a realist, she is an idealist. He doesn’t believe in serious relationships and marriages, she believes in romance and marriages. But one thing they have in common, aside from their physical attraction to each other, they both always make each other laugh and they both enjoy each other company. Have I said I laugh and smile most of the time? Yep. This story had grabbed me from the […]

Book Review – Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 19, 2014 Pages: 497 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon My first introduction to Mariana Zapata’s writing was through The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. Later at the end of last month, I devoured her Wait For Me and Kulti, and I was again hooked. I’d fallen head over heels in love with her writing, characters, and stories. That is the reason I decided to read her previous books, started with Under Locke. Guys, she is amazing!!! I got the same feelings. A lot of people can write, but Mariana Zapata CAN WRITE and an amazing story-teller. What is the story about? It follows the journey of a girl named Iris who has to move from Florida to Austin because she is broke. Her step-brother offers her a job at his best friend’s tattoo shop. The problem is that his step-brother and her new boss are the members of a Motorcycle Club where his father was once a member of and the kind of place her mother had not wanted her to be part of […]

Book Review – It’s You (It’s You #2) by Katy Regnery

Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 17, 2017 Pages: 258 Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon This book follows the story from the earlier book, that’s why we need to read the previous book (book 1) before jumping into this one. I grabbed this book right after it was published because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen to Darcy and Jack. You can read my review of the previous book here. So, what about it? I might be in the minority here. I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did the previous book. The previous one was not perfect, I did have some problems with it, but this one had taken it to another level and I could not ignore it. Let me elaborate the factors that made me turn off first before I explained what I loved about this story. First, I still could not connect with Darcy, which is the heroine. It was hard to even finish this book because of her. I find that her reaction was too much and she was kind […]

Book Review – It’s You (It’s You #1) by Katy Regnery

Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: January 3, 2017 Pages: 246 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This book was the first paranormal book that I read after more than a year reading full of contemporary romance books. It marked my comeback to my paranormal root which had been the genre that made me fall in love with reading novels in the first place. Thanks to Twilight. You know what? I enjoyed it. After devouring contemporary romance for a long time, I think it’s time for me to try another genre. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I picked up this book since I believed my taste has completely changed. It took a miracle to make me enjoy a paranormal story again. What made me love this story? It is pure romance, which is MY THING. It made me go back to the year when I’d first discovered Twilight saga and fell head over heels in love with the series. The story is completely different with Twilight, obviously, but the feel was kind of the same. Kind […]
